Parts of the UK are expected to get hit by more severe weather after several weeks of floods and power outages.

The Environment Agency currently has nine severe flood warnings in place in the south-west of England - this means there's a risk to life.

Parts of some towns and villages there are still badly flooded following major storms at the start of January.

There are also warnings in place for other areas like Aberystwyth in Wales, north-west England and coastal areas in Yorkshire.

But there are some areas in the UK that are ok; if you're leaving in northern Scotland you've probably escaped the bad weather.

We want you to get in touch if you've been affected by the severe weather.

I live near the Somerset levels and it's flooded waist high so now I can't ride my bike safely.

The floods have been really bad where I live and has flooded into many people's homes making ours the home for most of our neighbours.

No, I have not been affected by flooding but I've heard it's really bad in places like Somerset so I'm really worried for them!

Yes. The outside of my house was flooded in every direction. We had to wear wellies to get out of the house!

Our greenhouse was knocked down from the patio onto the garden!
